1. I (a man )will never lay with a woman.
2. I can never lay "with a man as with a woman" because the woman would be non-existent.
3. Because the man I lay with does exist, I am not laying with a man as I would with a [non-existent] woman.
4. Therefore, I am available to "enter the kingdom of God." But, it doesn't exist anyway, so it's a moot point. Just like the non-existent woman.

Clear enough for ya? ;-)

Two people pledging to remain true and faithful for life is changing the meaning of marriage?

Strange because you are the one trying to redefine the marriages of our parents into our mothers being nothing but breeding bitches at puppy farms.

The filthy agenda is the one you use to pervert the message of Christ and forgiveness into nothing but a laundry list of finger pointing and self righteous vanity of gossips.

There is no way around the judgement you face concerning Matt. 25:31-46

Think again Einstein:

ARTICLE VI

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

AMENDMENT IX
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Now about voting on civil rights:
SCOTUS Majority opinion:

West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette 1943

"The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections."

You lost as soon as you tried to link the right to marry to moral judgments on what you consider deviant behavior.

I am sure we both agree that murder, rape and child abuse, theft etc are deviant and perverse behaviors.

Yet not a peep from you about making it illegal to marry for people who exhibit those behaviors.

What about banning people with extreme cases of OCD from marriage. OCD is certainly a deviant behavior.

You're just another homophobic bigot. Nothing more.

And speaking of morals, try this on for size and look in the mirror:

The Bible calls it sin in several passages, no differant than murder, stealing or whatever. Just because you give in to something doesnt make it justified in Gods eyes.
Murder, stealing, etc hurt other people. Homosexuality doesn't. Some god you got there!
